Zachary Keeting and Christopher Joy visit the studio of painter Gaby Collins-Fernandez.

"For me the idea of having competing realms of visuality is really interesting. So, what is the spatial expectation of a painting? What is the spatial expectation of something which reads as something that lives in digital space? ... What is the expectation for depth of field inside of those different kinds of worlds.. and then when we mix them together? ... What does that mean about the kind of material and emotional realities that we have when we experience this extremely hybrid space? ... This is actually how I interact, this composite of the digital world, the physical world, the photographic world is how I understand what an image is. In that sense it's extremely representational painting."
